Recognized as one of Canada's Top Small & Medium Employers

Here are some of the reasons why Wave was selected as one of Canada's Top Small & Medium Employers (2018):

  • Wave employees are part of a rapidly growing software firm that added almost 50 new positions last year (a 58% increase in personnel year-over-year) -- and employees can also share in the company's success through a share purchase plan that's open to all employees
  • Located in Toronto's rapidly gentrifying east-end Leslieville neighbourhood, employees at Wave enjoy a unique workspace that features an employee lounge complete with video games, foosball, a selection of free snacks, sparkling water on tap and a beer fridge -- employees can also take advantage of onsite monthly massages and instructor-led yoga, pilates and cardio classes
  • Wave employees also enjoy a busy social calendar throughout the year, including numerous fun onsite and offsite events such as trivia nights, board game and euchre tournaments, chess seminars, running and rock climbing, wine and beer tastings, summer barbecues, a red carpet-themed holiday party at Christmas, a Blue Mountain ski trip to Collingwood, and much more
